Breaking a sweat

Tonight, I went for a run. I've been running a lot lately (for those of you who haven't been keeping up with me). But this was rare, I mean this was a real sweating, sucking wind, calf cramp, bugs your teeth, kind of run. I've never really considered myself an athlete, but I just have to say, there's something to be said for leading your sack 'o bones places that you didn't think were possible. Sometimes you just have to break things down before they can be whole again, and after the week I've had, just with every day stress and pressures I put on myself, I really needed it. It felt so good just to feel completely drained and weak. It really puts things into perspective about what's worth getting tense over, and what to just throw into the wind.

Here's to breaking a sweat!

Oh how I miss that postrun exhustion/endorphine high. It does my heart good to know that a busy mom with three girls finds time for it - hopefully that means that I'll be able to find a way to get my act together with one and figure out how/when to fit it into my schedule.
